    I think most people who had a clue were pretty sure that the product would improve with Stephanie and Tripe H in charge. And you have to figure that Vince saw criminal charges coming against him. Nothing short of that could have persuaded him to step down.

    Even if he beats the charges, most fans probably won't want him running the company again, because they'll realize that he was a problem for a long time.

So, hopefully, these are signs of good changes to come.

    WWE has made a rash of terrible decisions in recent years, but I have to give credit where credit it's due. Their women's division has never been better.

In his recent Van Vliet interview (which was cool), he did claim it wasn't for needing the money (admitting that TNA was).

    BTW: anyone watch Summerslam? The ending was nuts.
    I really dug SummerSlam. The women's division is on fire right now, and Roman just continues to amaze me. With HHH brining a different flavor to the company, WWE has a chance to make the kind of splash that it hasn't made for many years.

    I assume he was broke and needed the money, because no matter how much money he makes, he always seems to stay broke.
    He wore the big gold and it looked like he was gonna tip over.


    And apparently he passed out at some point in the match too.
